    different from the initial INICAL but has the
    same Pay Date. (Unique processing start/end date)

    of range
  • Employee has a contract start date on their
    JOSBSCN which is outside the range of payroll
    dates.

    entered on the INICAL screen at the start of the
    payroll processing.

    entries in UPDCAL_FUT for this job will not be
    included. Verify the pays paid on the job screen

    and days worked in period for wages being paid.
  • Last Pay in Contract with additional work days
    detected
  • This is the last pay. The of Work days/Days
    paid will not balance. Days paid will be greater
    than workdays. These additonal days may need to
    be on a new contract. Or you will need to adjust
    the job or payperiod begin/end dates. This is
    where Addition could be used.

    to re-initialize duplicate jobs

  • Employee job does not have a calendar type or
    associated pay group tied to a calendar assigned

    to USPSDAT/CALTYPED to add the calendar name
    then go USPSDAT/CALMNT to add the calendar
    working, Holidays etc for each month required to
    process the employees pay.

    associated with that job. Use Payscn to add the
    pay account for each job assigned to an employee.

  • All pay accounts must 100
  • If using a fixed Pay Account the system will
    take the fixed then you must assign a 100 pay
    account to the remaining. Pay Accounts must be
    active. Inactive pay accounts are ignored by the
    system
